"Shoot what moves you. Shun the familiar. Take the picture now, because in a second it will be gone forever. And never leave the house without a camera. The last point is the only one I seem to achieve with any regularity. But there we go." Andy King
Jo Blogg - Skull Mandala 3
Aiming to bring attention to important issues, such as environmental destruction and the impact of artificial products, Blogg creates whatever takes her fancy in whatever media fits her concept, be it paint, print, sculpture, found object or any combination thereof, usually with a good pinch of irony in the mix.
